The Colombians have invaded the shores of the Philippines. Significantly,we have accepted them because they came with an energetic beat and killer dance moves that can help us stay fit and healthy! That’s right; We are talking about this undying fitness trend called ZUMBA. Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese students think that this activity makes them fit and young. Gia, a Vietnamese student said: “I think this is also one way of sharpening my English listening skills. One exciting way of studying English in the Philippines is joining the extra-curricular activities with English as a medium- Zumba is a perfect example here .”
The dance steps formulated by Zin Arman (Professional Zumba instructor) make the students and teachers feel the heat that generates the party mood. After a month of joining zumba, most participants generally feel lighter and more positive with their fitness condition.Students also think that the best way to lose weight and initially build muscles is joining Zumba.
